Instead they were wheeling a barrow back and sorth between a tunnel and a crude -.vooden hopper Bits ot rork wilh galena ant -phalerite lay around, and tha wasn't what 1 was looking for. wished them luck and went oh my way. I visited two more place* arx drew blanks and then, a little afte 4 o'clock, 1 struck something mor< promising, I crossed the P.M. railroad' oranch line tracks and stopped t look at some Loading bunkers on \ aiding. A broad ramp for truck ran up behind them, and at th bottom of the bunkers I could see loose ore—high-grade, like th paystreak at Dark Angel. Unfortunately rt didn't meai much, because this was copper country, and chalcopyrite oorni.p are two of the commonest opp«i minerals- Still, it was Deter than galena, which is A lead r*. 1 put the car in low and started p the road beyond the tracks, ast a sign that read: PRIVATE NO TRESPASSING ARGUS MINES, INC. I'd gone about hall a mile further when the road leveled off into mudd? clearing with several hack; sitting around the edge I stopped the car got out and tarted to walk toward the mine iump, a heap of weathered, bro<en rock on the side of the hill. with an iron loading chute stinking out beyond it over a smooth muddy plain, • • • f HADNT gone 10 steps before someone shouted at me. I looked over my shoulder and saw a man coming out of one of the shacks rle carried a gvin, so I stayed put "Didn't you see that sign?" he yelled. I waited until he came a little closer "Sure, birt I'm here on ausiness." "What d'you want?" "I'd like to see the owner.' "He's not here." This fellow's notions o( hospitality s«emed distinctly Jimitcd, so I tossed out a tittle bait, "I'm taking a look around thi; part ot the country to see if I can find a likely gamble in a golc prospect." He eyed Cory's blue convertible behind me. It was a pretty fancy job and even beneath an inch a mud it still loked like Money. "Sorry," he said gruffly, "but wi have a valuable propitty here am we have to be careful about slran gers." "Mind If 1 lake a look around? He shook his head.

An armed guard wasn't out ot he way. Some of the big outfits ake elaborate precautions when hey're checking up on a prospect they have under option. They're afraid that if good news got out there'd be a rush to stake half the country around them, for sale later at hotd-up prices. Still, there'd be no harm in finding out who owned the place and I resolved to phone Effie when 1 got bark to Dark Angel. sloshed through more mud and managed to find two more copper prospect holes before it got too dark to see anything. They'd both been shipping copper ore. about a carload a week, and by (he lime I headed back for the townsite. my idea didn't seem so bright. 1 could visit every outfit in the valley and any one of them might be the fence tor Cory'« ore. and 1 wouldn't know it.
